This is a short video from the Blissology Align Your Yoga, Align Your Life module.
Of course, it makes even more sense when you have seen the other 50 videos in the program and partaken in our Zoom calls in the course.
However, I want to share it since so many people in the course commented on how they didn’t have any clicks or pinches in their knees or hips doing the pose this way.
That’s one of my driving passions: to help people understand how the forces can be directed through the body so that we get the maximum stretch but our joints remain stable.
You will hear the key Blissology Yoga mantras: “Toes Before Pose,” “Stabilize Ankles and Knees, then Mobilize Hips.”
What you will need to let go of for this approach is striving to get the chest and hips on the floor. All too often this means we collapse in the pose instead of staying expanded and keeping our joints safe. We also “Go-Around” the stretch this way.
I hope this helps you with your yoga and to lead a life of health and positivity.
